's nuclear program. for years the governments here and in the u.s. have said north korea was some way of having a miniaturize device suitable for use on top of a missile. at least, this test brings that prospect closer. despite last year's successful rocket launch, north korea has yet to develop ballistic missile that could strike the u.s. that the country it says its nuclear weapons programs are targeted at. a miniaturized bomb would emboldened p'yongyang. >> it will give them more confidence that they have a credible deterrent. i personally believe they want a deterrent to keep americans out and to buy them room in which they can operate. >> of the president lee myung- bak held talks. the country's military is on watch for north korea's next move. >> we have strengthened the readiness of our military by increasing the security alert level to level two and we have activated the joint surveillance platform with the u.s. to monitor and north korean military movements. announcements in recent days in north korean media have led to speculation that their young leader might be backing awa

: south korean government officials were forced to respond. they condemned them for conducting the test deliberately. the president-elect park met with the outgoing president. the two leaders pledged they will not give into any provications. they also say defense matters will be handed over to the new administration. north korean officials have shown no will to change their course of action. south koreans must come up with something more than enduring the restless days ahead. park will find this issue high on her list of priorities in her upcoming five years as president. nhk world, seoul. >>> officials in chunina oechinn ministry issued a statement. nhk world reports from beijing. >> reporter: chinese leaders have made it clear that they oppose the test. communist leader says he wants the korean peninsula to be stable. north korea may be a traditional ally but chinese leaders say the nuclear program as a threat to their national security. but they also oppose tougher sanctions. they believe joining the u.s., japan and other countries in pushing for more sanctions would further isolate

crime and the like and the fact we have expressly prohibited certain agencies of government of doing any research into gun violence, how to reduce it, we don't think twice about reducing -- calling for research in reducing epidemics and reducing the incidents of disease. can you talk from a public health perspective about the problem of gunshot deaths in our country and what you think we need to do to address it? >> sure. as i indicated in my testimony, i think from a policy standpoint, really the most important thing is that we currently make it way too easy for criminals to get guns. and there are some commonsense ways to address that. we need comprehensive background checks. we are never going to be effective without that. as is indicated by the numbers, it's difficult to prosecute them and that's frankly by design. the laws are written in a way to minimize accountability for those who are buying and selling firearms. i think that's very wrong-headed. i have several studies that i've conducted that showed very consistent evidence that states that have greater measures to hold firearm

explains, our government has allowed a few giant conglomerates to rig the rules, raise prices, and stifle competition. just like standard oil in the first gilded age a century ago. in those days, it was muckrakers like ida tarbell and lincoln steffens rattling the cages and calling for fair play. today it's independent thinkers like susan crawford. the big telecom industry wishes she would go away, but she's got a lot of people on her side. in fact, if you go to the white house citizen's petition site, you'll see how fans of "captive audience" are calling on the president to name susan crawford as the next chair of the federal communications commission. "prospect" magazine named her one of the "top ten brains of the digital future," and susan crawford served for a time as a special assistant to president obama for science, technology and innovation. right now she teaches communications law at the benjamin cardozo school of law here in new york city and is a fellow at the roosevelt institute. susan crawford, welcome. >> thank you so much. >> "captive audience?" who's the captive? >> us, al

government checks, handouts and programs. that would be the way to save this country, in my opinion. that's the way to help poor people and i resent the fact that those of us who have a different view of how to help poor people somehow don't care about them. compassion and help for the poor and struggling amounts to more than just borrowing money and sending out more money in the form of checks. my goal is to help working americans from the social and economic harm that is caused by policies i think of this president and the senate majority. these programs have not worked in places like baltimore. one in three residents in baltimore are living in poverty. there are solutions to these problems and we can do better, we have to do better, we cannot continue on this course. so compassion demands change. our goal must be to help more americans find gainful employment and let them support themselves, their family and to prosper. before closing my remarks, i would like to address a serious challenge we will be facing. we have to consider the immigration questions, and studies show the $2.5 trill

and don't expect governments to be forth coming about that. >> let me ask you briefly as the u.n. goes back into session to look at sanctions, what more can be done at this point? >> very little on an international scale. in 2009 they came out with some very good sanctions, but it didn't really influence the north koreans' actions. i don't think there's any marginal addition to the sanctions that are in place. they're going to call on the north koreans to blink, if you will. very little from an international point of view. necessary but won't produce an outcome. >> brown: ambassador jack pritchard and james acton, thank you both very much. >> thank you. >> woodruff: we have more about today's nuclear test on our web site, including a dispatch on reaction in seoul, south korea, from our partner global post, plus links to previous newshour stories on north korea. and still to come on the newshour, white house spokesman jay carney; palm oil production in malaysia; osama bin laden's killer; plus, shields and brooks. but first, the other news of the day. here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreeniva

willingly whether it's in government, whether it's in your office? i mean it just doesn't happen. so i think that the irony here, one of them, is that this man who many people associate with the middle ages is going to go down in history as a modernizer because he really showed this modern reality and was the first, you know, even 600 years ago when it happened, it happened to heal a schism. this is happening because he, a, sees we're living longer now, but, b, sees for all the incense and candlelight around the papacy, it's also a job, and there are certain requirements of the job, and if you can't do it, what he's saying and voting with his feet, is that you need to leave. >> well said. >> amen. >> i think it shows a lot of humility. in april of 2005 when pope john paul ii died, we broadcasted "hardball" from rome. as we closed our last show from there, let's listen. look at these people standing for hours, day and night, through the avenues of rome, packed together as if they had been caught and crushed in an industrial strength trash compacter. there they stood seeking no edge, plotting
or another. but the problem is that he's addressing a dysfunctional government headed towards a sequestering in march that cuts across the board irrationally. health programs, aids programs because the congress can't make choices anymore, because they can't make rational choices. can he lead them? can they be led? the question here is whether the president does give an olive branch, just try to break the dynamic we've seen or continues along this tat for tat we've seen since the election which is pretty extraordinary. >> some are saying he believes that the republican party is vulnerable, some seats are vulnerable so he would like to push his own agenda, help democrats and to do that, we've already seen some republicans coming out saying they're going to try to block chuck hagel's nomination, some of the other things they're going to go up against the president to make sure none of his legislation continues to move forward. will this be setting the stage for more gridlock in washington? does the state of the union have that much power to change? >> depends on what he wants to do. he can gain
